Sir	I have drawn a Bill on you payable to the Order of Surtees Burdon & Co at Twenty days dated the 26th Inst for £381-16-4 being for the piece of fine Silver I lately sent you & which I have no doubt you will duly honor _ I expected you would have allowed me 5s 10d per ounce, as Mr Walton the Agent for Greenwich Hospital, received that price of Mr Holmes for a Piece he sent him at that time and Mr Holmes likewise paid the Carriage.

                                                                          I am etc    J.E.B
